"Save Yourself" as written by James Michael, Joey Moi, Reid Henry, Brendan Mcmillan, Doug Oliver and Matthew Jean Paul Walst....
I’m the devil’s son straight out of hell
And you’re a angel with a haunted heart
If you’re smart you’d run and protect yourself
From the demon living in the dark
It’s nothing to be gained cause I can never change
You can never understand my sickness
(I’ll never understand my sickness)

Save yourself
From a life full of lies and a heart full of pain and sorrow
Save yourself
From the choices I make because nothing but failure follows me
Save yourself

You’re the perfect drug when it hurts like hell
I never needed anyone so much
There’s no-one else I love and I curse myself
Cause the right thing is to give you up

I’m overcome by shame cause I can never change
You can never understand my sickness
(I’ll never understand my sickness)

Save yourself
From a life full of lies and a heart full of pain and sorrow
Save yourself
From the choices I make because nothing but failure follows me
Save yourself
From a life full of lies and a heart full of pain and sorrow
Save yourself
From the choices I make because nothing but failure follows me
Save yourself

You can never understand my sickness
(I’ll never understand my sickness)
Cause I don’t understand my sickness
(I’ll never understand my sickness)

Save yourself
From a life full of lies and a heart full of pain and sorrow
Save yourself
From the choices I make because nothing but failure follows me
Save yourself
From a life full of lies and a heart full of pain and sorrow
Save yourself
From the choices I make because nothing but failure follows me

Save yourself

    My InterpretationI personally love this song because I feel identified a lot. The meaning of this song is about this guy trying to protect his beloved, from who? from him.
    This person has a dark story behind him and even though he loves her.... he thinks the best option is give up on the relationship because he thinks he's a waste of time/monster/bad person and so on. I think this last part is described perfectly in the chorus.
